[Summary of Lecture] This course focuses on the energy operation in chemical industry and basic knowledge for energy conversion. Topics in the energy operation include heat exchanger, evaporation operation, and heat transfer in those processes. Topics in the energy conversion cover exergy, Carnot cycle, Rankine cycle, and heat pump.
[Aim of Lecture] This lecture aims for students to understand fundamental knowledge and design concept about energy operation and energy conversion in chemical industry.
By the end of this course, student will be able to explain: 1) fundamentals and heat transfer mechanism of heat exchanger and evaporation operation, 2) design method of heat exchanger, 3) fundamentals and cycles of heat-work energy conversion system.
